|Frank Churchill- A surplus of parents?

I was having a discussion with my father today (one of our many on Austen), and we were going through the books thinking about who is 'orphaned.' And we decided that Frank Churchill, far from being orphaned, has a surplus of parents.
He has Mr Weston, his step-mother Mrs Weston (Poor miss Taylor!), and his 'adopted' parents Mr and Mrs Churchill. I count them as parents since he took on their name, and is their heir. If you include his biological mother, Frank has five parents!
No wonder he felt like going on a holiday.
